Sensory Integration is how the brain processes all the sensory input from the surrounding environment. Once our sensory integration processing is fully developed it enables us to concentrate on someone talking to us whilst there is traffic noise outside or whilst we are sitting in an uncomfortable chair or even sitting off balance. It also determines whether we can stay balanced while riding a bicycle as well as how we coordinate watching a soccer ball and then being able to kick it toward a goal.
Disturbances in our ability to process all this information can seriously affect how we cope with our day to day life. The treatment of Sensory Integration disorders was developed by the Occupational Therapist Jean Ayres. According to Ayres some people have difficulty in sending the information from our senses to our brain and processing this ready for the appropriate responses. As an example, many children with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) have a compromised Sensory Integration System, they have difficulty concentrating, relaxing, sitting still or holding focus. They can feel a general physical or psychological restlessness.
